From the back cover:

'Ello, there. It will come as no surprise that yours truly is a big fan of cars. Over the years I've got together facts and figures on all the greatest motors and stuck them in this 'ere scrapbook - one car for every year since they made FAB1, the greatest car of all time. Course I would say that, bein' its driver an' all, but it's not every car that can shoot criminals and swim 'appily along in the Mediterranean.

They made FAB1 in 1965, and since then there 'ave been some real beauties, like the Lamborghini Countach, Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe and Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. You gotta love 'em - specially when I tell you all the history and technical stuff what's gone into 'em.

Quantum physics plays a big part in International Rescue's work helping people in distress all across the planet. It plays a big part in your life too... without it we would not have the silicon chip, the laser, computers, or mobile phones and worst of all no Thunderbirds!

I have noticed that people find the subject hard to understand so I took it upon myself to pen this simple guide explaining the seemingly most complicated theories in astrophysics.

Clearly illustrated and easy to follow, let me, Brains, explain the wonders of science!

On 30th September 1965, International Rescue successfully completed their first assignment, and the Tracy brothers imprinted themselves on a generation of captivated children. Thirty-two episodes, many repeats, sixty territories, two feature films, three albums, numerous comics, books, toys, videos and DVDs and five decades later, Thunderbirds are still saving the world from the brink of peril.

Thunderbirds: The Vault will be the first ever lavishly illustrated, definitive, beautifully packaged, presentation hardback telling the story of this enduring cult phenomenon. Packed with previously unpublished material, including prop photos, design sketches, production memos and other collectible memorabilia, plus specially commissioned photography of original 60s merchandise, and new interviews with cast and crew, it’s going to be a collectors’ dream and a fantastic piece of British TV history."
